  • Post L-RPLND - slightly swollen left leg and back pain

    Hello Everyone,

    I am new to this site. It has been 2 weeks since I had my robotic L RPLND.
    -My left leg is still slightly swollen and also it is 8f warmer than the other leg. -There is some burning sensation in the left upper thigh.
    - my back hurts if I sleep.So, having problems sleeping.
    Are these symptoms expected? Will they go away with time?

    Thanks in advance for your answers! God bless!!

    The swelling in the leg could be lymphodema. Did your surgeon advise you to have a very low fat diet for the first few weeks post-op to help avoid this? It might help. My husband had robotic RPLND and had some swelling in groin and left thigh. It went away after about 8 or 9 days.

    I had an open RPLND a week ago and I've been having terrible back pain. I attribute mine to two factors: 1) My tumor had grown into part of my back muscle and my surgeon had to take some of the muscle to get all the tumor; 2) I had terrible muscle spasms post-op.
